Freebie Friday: Butterfly

Hello! I hope that you have had a fantastic week and I have a fab image to share with you this week. We are now well into spring and have a fast approaching summer which means flowers, bugs and butterflies! and this week I bring you a fab butterfly image.

Don't you love this image! I love butterflies but I do tend to get brought quite a few dead one by my cat Patch. I do love watching them flutter around a butterfly tree. I however I have used this image for a slightly somber mood.

Sympathy cards, I find, are hard to make but with and image like this you can't go wrong. 

I hope that you have a fab weekend and I will catch you next week.

Freebie Friday: Cake

Happy Friday people! How are you all doing? I hope that you have had a fab week. We have had glorious sun here in the UK but today its gone back to normal and is raining. But I got to do some gardening earlier in the week. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my herb garden, so glad that we have finally done that. This week I have made a simple Birthday card with a bit of a twist.
Here's my card. 

Can you see whats a bit different about this one.

I found a close up image of a cake and used that to make the main cake part, that is one of the beautiful things about digital stamps they have not limits.

I hope that you have a fab weekend!

Freebie Friday: Bumble Bee

Hello Scribble darlings! How are you all on this glorious day from the UK? I have had a fab week, lots of things happening some I hope to be sharing with you guys. But! Its Friday which means one thing I have another Freebie to share with you this week. Here is the fab image.

If you have ever been over to my blog you know that I love bees! No really I could quite happily make bee cards until the cows come home! However I do not have a bee card to share with you today...I have somthing a bit different.

So what do you think I have made for your delight today! 

I have made a bookmark! I love books and I hate having to look through to try and find out where you left off and don't get me started folding down the corners! I coloured this guy in on the PC and then duplicated him and then flipped him up so that there is a mirror image on the back. 

Finally I got a bit of sheet magnet cut a couple of bits off stuck them in side and viola! One magnetic bookmark and one happy book lover! 

I hope that you have a fab weekend!

May the 4th Be With You!

 A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

Did you know that May 4th has been designated as Star Wars Day?  It was created by fans to honour the Star Wars franchise originally created by George Lucas.  The first organized celebration occurred in 2011 at the Toronto Underground Cinema in Toronto, Ontario (Canada).  Festivities included a costume contest, a trivia game show and the web's best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen.

Fans, big and small and from all walks of life, even including a government official who made reference in an acceptance speech, celebrate this unofficial holiday in a variety of manners; although, social media and television seem to be the largest.  Even Disney Theme Parks have gotten in on the festivities starting last year with several planned events since they purchased Lucasfilm which incuded the rights to the massive Star Wars franchise.   There have also been a couple Minor League baseball teams that have worn special uniforms as part of "Star Wars Day" promotions.

Events are planned in Canada, the US, the UK and probably other countries around the world.  I'm sure somewhere this weekend there are also television reruns showcasing the movies.  Other festivities will include Star Wars-loving friends getting together and having viewing parties of their own. While others may engage in Lightsaber fights.  I'm sure there will also be some gaming marathons as well.

As it turns out Brr, Brrnice and Carl, are also avid Star Wars fans.  This year they are having a small viewing party of their own.  Brrnice has even whipped up a batch of Chewwie cookies for the event.  If you recall, she recently graduated from a food prep course and while her speciality is in sushi, she is an excellent cook and baker overall.

Brrnice decided to dress up as Leila.  She looks wonderful doesn't she?!  Leila is such a strong female character and Brrnice is a strong female herself; so, it was a fitting choice for her costume.

Carl thought it would be fun to experience fur for a change so he decided that he would dress up as Chewbacca.  He even tried to talk like Chewwie and everything!  Of course where is Han Solo when you need him to interpret because no one can understand Carl-bacca at the moment.

Now Brr was of two different mindsets.  He just loves Star Wars so much that he couldn't decide on just one costume.  So, for the earlier part of the day, Brr dressed up as Darth Vader.  Given that Brr has a lot of black in his natural colouring, dressing as Vader was a no-brainer.
However, all that heavy breathing in a mask made him a bit light headed so he switched to a Yoda costume.  Boy that penguin has a lot of energy, as he has been engaging in Lightsaber fights with Baby Brr for a while now.  He has also been sharing Yodaisms with everyone such as, "Ahh, hard to see, the Dark Side is", "Truly wonderful the mind of a child is" and "Always in motion is the future". Of course if he keeps it up, Brrnice will have a few choice words of her own to share.

So whether you celebrate Star Wars day or not...

Clicking on any of the images should bring you to their location in the Scribbles Designs store.  If there is a glitch, you can head to the STORE and click on the label 'Penguins', 'Frogs', and 'Sentiments' to locate the images.

So many digitals, so many possibilities!
Psst...interested in a new freebie or two?  Don't forget that each Friday, my fellow teammie Sam is hosting her own special post where she'll be sharing a free image with you all.  You can check out the latest Freebie Friday by clicking HERE.  And, as always, there is another freebie up for grabs over in our current challenge which we'd love for you to enter, if you haven't already.  This month it is all about Doodling.  Our Doodle Time challenge has just passed the halfway mark so there is lots of time to get in on all the fun.  You have until 9:00 p.m. PST on May 14th to enter.  You can find out all the details you need for participating and for grabbing the special freebie, by clicking HERE.

If you are not yet a follower, now is the perfect time to become one. This way you won't miss out on learning about all the wonderful new images being added to the store, missing out on the latest antics and adventures of your favourites characters or on all the special events happening over here at the Scribbles Designs Challenge blog!

Well guys, that is it for this one.  I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Until next time!

Freebie Friday: Egg & Bonus sentiment!

Another Happy Friday Scribblers!! We have a glorious sunny day here and its warm!!!!!  I strayed a bit today an thought this was a fun card to celebrate any of those good eggs out there! And this week there is a bonus sentiment to go with the Freebie Friday image... how cool is that?

Used a simple method of a plaid pattern with my alcohol markers to create the background... isn't it fun?

I understand Sam has some ideas coming for the upcoming Freebie Fridays... I hope you continue to join us for the fun!! 

Have a fabulous day!
